  • Motorola Guy Kawasaki Twitter X Phone Customizable Rumor Motorola's Guy Kawasaki sparked rumors with a post about custom cars

     


    In the world of mobile gadgets and accessories, it doesn't take much these days to start the rumor mill turning. So when Motorola advisor Guy Kawasaki made a Google+ post last week about a customizable car, the internet naturally started speculating about what that could mean regarding the rumored upcoming Google-Motorola X Phone.


    The one line post, which reads, "Wouldn't it be great if you could personalize your phone like this," has prompted many to wonder whether the X Phone will itself be customizable. (The X Phone hasn't yet been officially announced, by the way.)


    Some are really running with the rumor. AndroidAndMe posited that "customers will be able to customize their devices," choosing their color, as well as "some of the hardware specs like RAM and internal storage."


    Going even further, AndroidAndMe proposes the possibility that the X Phone won't just be one smartphone, but an entire line, designed to compete with Samsung's Galaxy brand.


    So, is this taking Kawasaki's Tweet way too far? Maybe so and maybe not. As CNET points out:


    "Surely, the timing of Kawasaki's comments is not coincidental. Or is it? In the age of Reddit and Internet trolling, I begrudgingly must reserve some skepticism for the rumor. Is Guy having a bit of fun with his fan base or is he legitimately gauging public interest?"


    If there's truth to the speculation, this could be a major follow-up to Google's previous smartphone offering, the more or less standard Nexus 4. But we'll probably find out for sure soon enough. As CNET notes, "should there be fire behind the smoke, this is the sort of rumor that won't be contained for long."

  • Samsung Galaxy Smartwatch leaked picture Leaked screen shot of what is allegedly Samsung's answer to Apple's iWatch

     


    With smear campaigns and even legal drama, Apple and Samsung have been at war for some time now. And with a new Samsung phone accessory in development, we know exactly where the next battle will be fought.


    According to Bloomberg, the company is working on a smart watch that could rival the iWatch, a new Apple accessory that's also reportedly in development. And the potential for cut-throat competition between the two companies is already a hot topic, with the Wall Street Journal calling this their "next battleground" and 9to5Mac quipping "the smart watch race is on."


    Samsung Smart Watch leaked screen shot One of the alleged screen shots of Samsung's upcoming smart watch hints at features and a Galaxy name

     


    Samsung has actually confirmed they're working on this fun gadget, but they haven't really revealed anything about it. Still, there's speculation that it may be marketed as part of Samsung's Galaxy line. "One would think that a product like this would fall under the Galaxy naming scheme and be called something like the “Galaxy Watch,” writes MobileSyrup.


    Meanwhile, leaked screen shots obtained by Slashgear that puportedly show the device back that assumption up, with a view of the watch face displaying the name Samsung Galaxy Altius.


    Even though we don't know much yet about the upcoming device, if we judge by existing smart watches, like the Pebble or Sony's SmartWatch, we can make a few assumptions.


    Samsung's smart watch will most likely be a bluetooth-enabled accessory that allows you to view updates and notifications from your phone, and will probably also include features like an actual clock, a calendar and music player.


    Beyond that, it's hard to say. But since the smart watch market is looking a lot like an arms race these days, it's likely that this next Samsung phone accessory surpasses the Samsung-compatible Sony SmartWatch in terms of features. In any case, it'll have to, if Samsung wants to stand a chance in its next bout with Apple.

  • Otterbox Defender Case Samsung Galaxy S3 Black OtterBox Defender Case for Samsung Galaxy S3 in Black

     


    In a head-to-head competition to find the best, we're starting a new feature on the Pure Mobile blog. In our accessories battles, we'll be pitting two similar accessories against one another and crowing a victor. This time, it's Samsung accessories in the ring, and two heavyweight Galaxy S3 carrying cases will be slugging it out


    Both of our challengers this week are designed to be heavy-duty, ultra durable and protective Galaxy S3 phone cases. Built to take a fair amount of abuse, only one will emerge victorious. Let's get started!


    Up first is  a contender that hardly needs an introduction – the OtterBox Defender Case for Galaxy S3. But will it defend its title? Well, things are looking good, as this multilayered, well-engineered accessory is certainly a heavy-hitter.


    Otterbox Defender Case for Samsung Galaxy S3 Black Layers OtterBox Defender Case for Samsung Galaxy S3 in Black

     


    WIth three protective layers, including high-impact polycarbonate and durable, shock-resisting silicone, as well as a screen protector, the Defender will keep your phone safe from bumps, shocks, drops, dust and scratches. But it's unlikely you'll ever drop it anyhow, since it comes with a convenient holster to keep it in place.


    That's a lot of protection in an all-around solid carrying case, so it's no surprise the Defender is one of the leading accessories of its kind for the Galaxy S3. And it's going to be a hard one to beat.


    Now onto the challenger, the PureGear Dualtek Case for Galaxy S3. Like the OtterBox Defender, the Dualtek is designed to withstand rough abuse, witha  durable, layered construction that combines strength, toughness and flex.

    Its 3M E.A.R. Corner Impact Protection controls shock by isolating vibrations, and its screen shield will keep your display safe from dings and scratches. This Galaxy S3 case is also quite slim and sleek, less bulky than the Defender, and provides superior grip that's comfortable in hand.


    So who won?


    As much as we like to root for the underdog, we'd have to give the champion's title to OtterBox in this case. Sometimes, the leader's just the leader for a reason, and though PureGear's Dulatek case provides a really great level of protection, the ultra-tough and durable thing is just OtterBox's forté. Well done, Defender case, well done!

  • Moshi Vortex Premium Stereo Earbud with Mic Moshi Vortex Premium Stereo Earbud with Mic

    We're turning up the bass with today's accessory of the week. That's because Moshi's Vortex Premium In-Ear Headphones are designed to deliver fast articulate bass without any distortion. Most of us know Moshi for their high-quality carrying cases, bags, chargers, and other iPhone accessories. But these awesome little earbuds prove the company's just as good with audio.


    Compatible with Android devices like Samsung's Galaxy line, BlackBerry handsets and Apple products, like iPhone, iPod and iPad, these earbud-style headphones for iPhone and more are ideal for listening via mobile phone. With an integrated mic, you can easily take or end calls without unplugging your headphones.


    And taking this smartphone compatibility even further, Moshi's even developed an iOS app  that'll speed up what's called the "burn-in" process. Never heard of it? Here's a quick rundown from Moshi:


    "Like breaking in a new pair of leather shoes, high-quality headphones perform better once they've been used over time. This process can take several weeks or even months [...] By playing back a curated list of tones/frequencies, the Moshi Audio Burn-In Tool allows the headphone diaphragms to relax and reach their optimal level of sonic performance."


    All that basically means that your headphones will reach optimal performance level much quicker.


    As for the actual sound clarity, a lot has gone into the Vortex Premium Headphones. Moshi promises that the high-definition HR8 neodymium drivers housed in the headphones' steel alloy construction "vastly improves low frequency extension, but also renders silky smooth highs." So you'll get clean bass and smooth treble.


    That's a whole lot of features from such a small accessory, and there's a lot more that the length of this review can't cover. But if you want details, Moshi's got a lot of in-depth information available on their website.


    But, as a quick recap, these Android, BlackBerry and iPhone compatible headphones from Moshi make the grade for us because they're the total package: Slick-looking and durable steel alloy design, convenient omnidirectional mic, high-quality sound that's clear and undistorted, a nice protective carrying case, and a reasonable pricepoint.

  • Samsung Galaxy S4 lainch event March 14 An invite for Samsung's Galaxy S4 launch event March 14

     


    We've been hearing rumblings and rumors about a new Galaxy phone from Samsung for months now. But nothing really solid has come of it, until now. Like right now. This morning, at Mobile World Congress, Samsung's mobile division chief J.K. Shin told Edaily that the Samsung Galaxy S4 will launch March 14.


    Here's what he said:


    "We introduced the Galaxy S3 in London last year, and this time we changed the venue (to New York)... as we were bombarded with requests from U.S. mobile carriers to unveil the Galaxy S4 in the country."


    So it's official, the Samsung Galaxy S4 is coming in less than a month. However, Shin fell short of saying anything about its specs or design.


    Still, at least we have the good old cell phone accessories industry to help us out in that department. Business Insider reported last week on some leaked pictures of what are supposedly Galaxy S4 carrying cases.


    Samsung Galaxy S4 Case Leak Leaked pics of Galaxy S4 cases may reveal what the latest Galaxy phone looks like before its big unveiling

     


    If the pictures (and Mobile Fun, the site which first revealed them) can be trusted, the Galaxy S4 is shaping up to be a bigger than the Galaxy S3, with a 5 inch screen like that of the Galaxy Note.


    Otherwise, notes SlashGear, "there’s the usual Samsung layout of a headphone jack up top, lock and volume keys on the side, and a charging/syncing port on the bottom, presumably microUSB. A hole for the microphone is alongside it."


    Still, we can't totally rely on Mobile Fun, since, like the rest of us, they've yet to actually see the latest Galaxy in Samsung's lineup. But at least we won't have to wait too long, since the Galaxy S4's big reveal is less than a month away.

  • ClarityOne w102 Over Ear Headphones White ClarityOne's new over-ear headphones with PureSound technology in white

     


    There are a lot of high-end, high-performance universally compatible headphones and earbuds on the market. Beats by Dr. Dre probably comes to mind, and maybe even Incipio. But if you aren't already acquainted with ClarityOne, you're missing out. The company is responsible for some of the best earbuds we've ever seen (or heard?), and now, with their new over-ear headphones, they've earned our title of mobile accessory of the week yet again.


    Last time we checked in with ClarityOne, we were amazed at the patented PureSound Processor used in their earbuds to eliminate all distortion and allow for top sound clarity. As one reviewer from BlackBerry OS noted, the PureSound processor isn't just a gimmick, but was more than 12 years in the making. It works by creating "opposing magnetic forces that cancel out the inductive reactance."


    Not surprisingly, the company has put the same technology into their new over-ear headphones, so you get your music, and nothing else, in a comfortable over-ear model.


    If you're curious about specs, BlackBerry OS  was good enough to put a list together:


    • Sensitivity (1kHz): 110dB SPL/mW
    • Frequency Range: 35 Hz – 17 kHz
    • Jack Plug: 3.5 mm stereo gold plated with 1/8 to /1/4 adapter
    • Cable Length: 48 in/1.12 m
    • Transducer: neodymium magnet
    • Impedance (1kHz): 8 ohm

    ClarityOne Over Ear Headphones Black


    And, along with the fact that they provide pretty much the best sound you'll ever get from a set of headphones, extra thoughtful details, like the ability to swivel the headphones' earpieces, make these fairly hard to match.


    Of course, ClarityOne's over-ear headphones are compatible with almost every device you can name – tablets like the Acer Iconica, Apple devices like iPhone and iPod, Samsung phones like the Galaxy line, and pretty much every other cell phone you can connect headphones to. So you can enjoy exceptional sound quality and clarity whenever and on whatever device.

  • Incipio Capture Rugged Case for Ativ Smart PC in Black


    We're beginning to see a growing trend in mobile devices. These days, more so than ever, device makers are offering up gadgets that don't squarely fit the mould of phone, tablet or PC. Phablets are but one example, and the recent Samsung ATIV Smart PC is another. As a result, mobile accessories makers are having to think outside the box, with cases, skins and other accessories that are just as unique as the devices themselves.


    In the case of Sasung's ATIV Smart PC, writes Slash Gear "you’ve got a tablet that’s not meant to be as thin or mobile, instead concentrating on the idea that you’re going to be working with a backpack or a large carrying case to get this unit around, noting that it’s a large tablet first, and mobile second."


    Incipio capture rugged case Samsung Ativ Smart PC black


    And today's mobile accessory of the week gets that spot on. With q hybrid design that blends a plextonium inner hard shell and outer silicone skin, it offers the protection you'd expect from any good tablet case.


    But since it's designed for a device that's not necessarily very portable, or not mobile in the strictest sense, it also boasts design features that address that fact. For instance, an integrated padded hand strap on the back of the case makes it easy to view content, or to simply move your ATIV Smart PC from room to room, the way you would an ordinary tablet.


    So far, Incipio's Capture Rugged Case is one of the best examples we've seen of an accessory that's as unique as the gadget it's designed for. Without a doubt, Samsung will continue its foray into phablets, large tablets and other devices that blur the lines of product category. And we can only hope that Incipio will be right there to offer up carrying cases and accessories for these new breeds of phones and tablets.

  • iLuv ISP123 SmashBox pro Portable Stereo Speaker Case Black


    Music lovers and active types rejoice! There's finally a phone case designed with you in mind, and it's Pure Mobile's accessory of the week. iLuv's SmashBox Pro is a portable speaker case that protects your phone while acting like a mini stereo.


    And while we've reviewed both portable speakers and phone cases on the Pure Mobile blog before, we've never seen an accessory that quite so perfect a hybrid between the two.


    Back in the old days, when you went out jogging, hiking or cycling, you took along a discman (remember those?) or a walkman (geez, you've got to be old if you know what that is.) But portable music is all about smartphones these days, which is great. We can almost hear Gandalf voice in your heads, saying "one device to rule them all, and in the darkness bind them."


    But your phone is pretty fragile, at least for a mountainside hike or the constant impact of a hearty jog. And though you can always listen with headphones, earbuds do tend to pop out when you're active. So the idea behind the SmashBox Pro is to let you listen with speakers, while protecting your phone inside a totally enveloped zip case.


    iLuv ISP123 SmashBox Pro Portable Stereo Speaker Case black interior


    It's designed so it can be fastened to your backpack or even to the handlebars of your bike. And where you go, your music goes with you, thanks to exterior controls that not only let you play and pause your tracks but also answer and end calls.


    As for sound quality, the general consensus from reviewers is that the sound is big and clear, much better than you'd expect from a set of speakers that's so compact. Meanwhile, the case is ultra-protective and secures your phone in place to keep it from jostling around.


    It's also designed to fit almost every phone model, from all incarnations of the iPhone, to Samsung devices like the Galaxy S3, BlackBerry handsets and pretty much any other model you can think of. And thanks to the fact that it's powered by AA batteries, it won't unnecessarily draw power away from your device.


    And though you obviously won't be able to use the SmashBox Pro as a case for your tablet or laptop, its speakers are still compatible with those devices too, so you won't really need any additional portable speakers. But we still love it best for high-quality on-the-go sound for when you're out and about or peeling around on your bike.


    So, if you've ever wanted to cycle past a car blasting your own favorite tunes as the driver next to you wonders where you're hiding your stereo system, you've finally got your chance. Thanks iLuv.

  • If you're a true girly girl, or a boy who just happens to love pink, you've probably found that the mostly black and silver world of high-tech gadgets and accessories isn't exactly dominated by your favorite color.


    But  if you know where to find them, you can still live la vie en rose with a ton cool accessories for your laptop, tablet and smartphone that would make Barbie – and Ken – proud. Here, we've rounded up our top picks for accessories in fuschia, cotton candy, and every shade of pink in between.

    iSkin Solo Case for iPhone 5 in Pink


    Oh my god, sparkles! We could go on about the virtues of iSkin's Solo iPhone 5 case, its slim design, its extra grip, the moulded ring around the camera for glare prevention. But we probably had you at glitter.



    Sony Smart Watch Band in Pink


    Smart Watches are already pretty cool as far as mobile accessories go, but as fashion accessories, they're way cooler when they come in fun colors, like this Pink Sony Smart Watch Strap.

    XMI X-Mini II Capsule Speaker in Pink


    XMI's X-Mini II Capsule Speaker is known as "the world's smallest boom-box" for a reason. It's small enough to toss in your bag but loud enough to bust out for impromptu dance parties. It's adorable in pink but every once in a while, you should use it to blast a couple black metal tracks, if only to mess with people.

  • No, you don't have to feel bad about having just bought a new case for your Samsung Galaxy S III. In fact, go ahead and get all the accessories you want, because your trusty old S III should be around for some time yet.


    Despite what the rumor mill would have you believe, the unveiling of the Galaxy S IV is not imminent. A couple of days ago, we reported that Samsung had released a teaser video, telling us to "get ready" because "the world awaits [...] something new" January 8 to 11, 2013.


    Those are of course the dates for the 2013 Consumer Electronics Show (CES), a huge annual event for the consumer electronics industry, where, in the past, big players in mobile have unveiled new devices and accessories.


    Needless to say, Samsung's promise of new and exciting developments started a whole whack load of speculation as to whether or not we might see the smartphone maker unveil a successor to the Galaxy S III – the Galaxy S IV.


    Aside from the fact that the teaser video cited the dates of a major event where smartphone makers, including Samsung, have traditionally introduced their new hardware, we actually know that the company is preparing a new handset.


    But alas, CNET has confirmed that Samsung will mostly be pushing smart TVs at this year's CES, and that the company most certainly will not be unveiling the Galaxy S IV. So for the time being, owners of the year's best selling smartphone can sit back and enjoy their Galaxy S III, brand new case and all.
